Excellent coarse with friendly staff

Low to high handicap friendly coarse kept very well. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and make you feel like you are playing at your home coarse even if you are just visiting.. Excellent drainage, so ,by far driest coarse even during wet times. Greens and fairways well kept and a lot of wild life for a relaxing feel. Would definitely recommend this coarse to anyone looking for a good round.

Briar Ridge review

The course was ok to play, pretty challenging. A little attitude when we first entered. since I booked online for cheaper price, I felt like we were treated differently. First time there, don't know if i'll be back, and I have a free round though NBC (10.00 for the cart really?). I guess unless you golf there frequently, you get treated like a scrub. I golf EVERYDAY, so I look for the best prices, sorry Briar Ridge if this offends you. I'll spend 10.00 daily to golf 9 everyday, but 20.00 for twilight i'll only go once or twice a week. which means i'll spend more if the price was lower per outing, then if the price is high.

Older well kept course

Course is older, but has a lot of character. Front nine offers tighter landing areas, in a wooded setting, whereas the back is more open and forgiving. Great value. Last 4 or 5 holes was pretty slow, as we waited on the foursome ahead of us on every shot, and they weren't about to ley us play though. :-(. Glad we played it, but likely wont make the 45 minute trip back again.

Not Impressed

Made a tee time through GolfNow to get there and find out they have an outing. Threw us ahead of the outing but then had them go off front and back nine. So after 3 holes we were stuck in the middle of the outing. Then they sent rangers out and we were hurried at 4 different holes because of slow play (which was obviously caused by the scramble, not us). Pretty disappointed with the whole day.

Sub par

The course, itself was fine. The golf etiqutte was awful, there was people with gym shorts and T-shirt’s. The person in the clubhouse was not very friendly and wasn’t at the desk when we entered. Don’t know if I’ll be returning

Poor management

The staff member was rude and I felt rushed, they didn’t have a good pace of play. Threesomes in front of twosomes. Took far to long to golf 18 for two people.

Greens

Course was in good shape considering the dry weather and hot temps. Sprinkler system must be working overtime. The greens were fantastic.

This course was just fine for a good time.

From the yellow tees it was somewhat easy and the greens were in good shape.

Course was in great shape considering the time of year. A few leaves on the ground but if you were in the fairway no problem.

Nice "country" course

I play here quite a bit and the course this day was in very good shape. The greens were nice & so were the fairways. The only problem was there were a lot of leaves.
